Empty the drip tray Fix the error message
06/2014 We have a fully automatic coffee machine in our kitchen, the Miele CVA 5060. The machine leaves nothing to be desired when it comes to the preparation of coffee specialties. However, it must be cleaned at regular intervals.
We recently descaled the coffee machine and then the empty drip tray message came up as usual. That's not unusual, because some things run into the drip tray when cleaning. But the problem was that the message didn't disappear when I put the drip tray back into the Miele coffee machine. In the operating instructions I only found the note that the control contacts of the drip tray must be cleaned and then dried. But that was also unsuccessful.
In the end, only a call to the Miele hotline helped. There they explained to us that water vapor can short-circuit the counter-contacts to the drip tray, especially during decalcification. The solution to the problem was very simple. Simply leave the door of the Miele CVA 5060 coffee machine open for an hour to dry. Then put the drip tray back in and lo and behold it works. Note from the hotline: Please do not blow into the device with a hot fan. Then plastic parts can warp and the machine can be permanently damaged. If you're in a hurry, it's better to set the f n to cold air and blow. Hope this tip helps!
